The short version: If it was assembled first
and then machined, (much of) the runout could be an
The longer version:
Most likely the internal threads were drilled and
tapped before the burr was milled and the shaft used
in a collet while the burr was machined.
Since the hole was either not centered, or not
parallel to the axis of the burr body, then the
machined cutting edges on the burr (even though
concentric with the shaft) would appear to be much
farther out than they actually are.
This would be quite common, and even almost
expected when starting out with a casting.
If you really wanted to see what's what, you
could put the shaft in a V-block (or pair of them),
and rotate it with a reference (pointer, plane, or
dial indicator) on/near the the cutting edges of the
